    3 bases coding for one amino acid, start (AUG/Met) or stop signal
  2. Anticodon
    3 bases complimentary to codon
  3. polyribosome
    many ribosomes on one mRNA coding for the same protein
  4. Wear and tear theory of Aging
    • Glycosylation
    • Free Radicals
  5. Glycosylation (gylcation)
    glucose added randomly to proteins affect activity
  6. Free radicals
    • damage proteins, DNA
    • "oxidative stress"
  7. Genetic Theory of Aging
    attributes aging to cessation of mitosis programmed into our genes

    Telomeres shorten with each mitosis when to short no more mitosis occurs

    Germ cells have longer telomeres
